New Camera Bag - Really?


I have a camera bag problem...I just can't find the right bag.  I did manage to get rid of 11 backpacks earlier this year - I kept five of them.  The last road trip to Dinosaur I packed two bags for the girls (Fuji and Oly), that was a good idea at the time but the back seat of the truck was full. Two Tripods, four camera bags (Erich had two as well), rain coats, 30 degree jackets, hats, gloves, face masks and more hats.  So, we drove out to the Boulder Mike's Camera and picked up the 13L Think Tank Unban Backpack.  It is a tight fit but I managed to squeeze all in all my gear.  It is a heavy bag!  Good thing I only plan on using it in the car!

Baalbek Lebanon - Virtually Via Google Earth

At lunch today I went to Baalbek, Lebanon by way of Google Earth.  Super cool to explore - there are quite a few virtual tours of the ruins.  Not being able to travel is bringing me down.  We have a trip scheduled to Israel and Jordan in September.  I am not holding my breath that we will be able to go with all of the travel restrictions due to the pandemic.  So, to get my travel and exploration fix, I went virtual. The place was pretty empty of people, shelter in place I guess...haaa.  I was armed with my SnagIt camera and took pictures of what I would take.  Pretty fun! Baalbek  is an ancient Phoenician  city  located in what is now modern-day Lebanon, north of Beirut, in the Beqaa Valley. Inhabited as early as 9000 BCE, Baalbek grew into an important pilgrimage site in the ancient world for the worship of the sky-god Baal and his consort Astarte, the Queen of Heaven in  Phoenician religion  (the name 'Baalbek' means Lord Baal of the Beqaa Valley). The center of the c

Black Canyon - Colorado Road Trip

In order to avoid people during this pandemic and get our photo geek we went on a mid-week road trip to the Gunnison area. I have been wanting to go out there for a while now but for some reason I thought it was far away, like Durango far. Gunnison is only 6 hours from Denver.  We took the non-interstate highways, which is always a nicer ride.  The last road trip, to Vernal, Utah, we stayed at a hotel with a kitchen so we could cook our meals.  Not a lot of options in Montrose or Gunnison.  We stayed at our first AirBnB.  With all the travel we do you would think we would have done this before.  We found a cabin on a horse farm just outside of Montrose.  So cool!! Erich bought an RTIC cooler...much bigger than the Yeti and cheaper! It was filled to the brim with breakfast, lunch and dinners.  No grocery shopping on this trip. The truck was full, we brought a ton of stuff.  Both coolers, all our camera gear, lawn chairs (which we used at the Crystal Mill), 5 gallons of water, luggage an

On Safari at the Denver Zoo

  The Denver Zoo has been struggling since the pandemic and stay at home orders. Just bringing in enough money to care for the animals has been a strain.  In order to reopen the zoo needed to put some social distancing measures in place and I must say they did a fantastic job.  Reservations are required with timed entry and enforcement of 50% capacity.  Foot traffic was one way and the routes were clearly marked making it easy to navigate.  The indoor exhibits remain closed.  We chose to take a Friday off for our safari, with a 9:00 am reservation.  We wanted to make sure we gained entry early to view the animals before the temperatures began to soar.  We have been experiencing a heat wave in Colorado, temperatures in the upper 90s.  It has been baking hot!
